I live in Seattle, Washington with my husband and family. This is my personal blog where I talk about sewing, sailing, living with a chronic illness, and other adventures. I have a Flicka 20 named Elska, and we sail as much as my pain allows (which unfortunately is a fraction as often as I’d like).

I’m a yoga teacher-in-training, studying Viniyoga. In the fall, I’ll begin training in Yoga Nidra. I live with fibromyalgia and panic disorder and have used yoga to help cope with both. My main focus as a future teacher is working with “spoonies”, people with chronic illnesses and conditions. My professional site is  www.holliebutler.com.

I love to sew (mostly clothes!) and I’m also a big sci-fi nerd, and love (among other franchises) Star Wars, hence my username, “Sewbi-Wan Kenobi”.

I have two Instagram feeds:

I share my home with these delightful wackadoodles:
